Acid

Wait a moment for the rain.

Allow it to renew life,

to wash away pain,

to make away with strife.

 

How sweetly and silently forgiveness doth fall,

cleansing sin and taint,

softly caressing the hurt of all.

Letting memories of dark go faint.

 

How kind to still fall with such care,

even after an eternity of giving,

still it soothes all despair,

incorruptible and never withering.

 

But in magnificent slums of foolish ingenuity,

where black smoke in the sky endlessly churns,

fed by greed of man in its vile perpetuity,

Falls the rain that burns.
